Flight and hotel Biarritz

A weekend getaway in Biarritz

Once a favourite destination of Napoléon III, Biarritz has remained a popular getaway location for both French and international visitors. Located on the Bay of Biscay on the Atlantic Coast, Biarritz is a jewel of the Basque region and celebrates the area's unique culture through food and festivities. City breaks in Biarritz can include plenty of time outdoors at some of France's most beautiful beaches, which are ideal for swimming, surfing or simply relaxing on the sand. The area is also filled with historical significance, as evidenced by the many local museums and heritage sites.

What to know before booking package holidays in Biarritz?

Flights from London and Manchester to Biarritz arrive at Biarritz Pays Basque Airport (BIQ). Located in the Central European time zone, Biarritz is only one hour ahead of the UK, making it an ideal location for city breaks. Though many restaurants, hotels and shops will accept major credit and debit cards, you may want to have some euros on hand, particularly for shopping in local markets. English is spoken in many locations throughout the city centre, though providing a greeting in French is always appreciated. You may also hear an unfamiliar language during your stay: Basque. This language isolate is spoken in this part of France and nearby Spain.

When is the best time of year for city breaks in Biarritz?

Located in southwest France, very close to the Spanish border, Biarritz benefits from a warmer climate than other parts of the country. You may wish to plan package holidays in Biarritz to take advantage of the sunshine and fantastic beaches that the city has to offer. The best time for warm weather is from May to September. Holidaymakers booking flights to and hotels in Biarritz should keep in mind that the city is busiest during August, when many people from around the country flock to this coastal destination.

What is there to do in Biarritz?

The city's main draw is its location. Package holidays in Biarritz can include surfing, walking around the scenic Port Vieux or simply enjoying a picnic on one of the beautiful beaches. The city, home to a large aquarium and several historical museums, is also ideally situated for day trips to other Basque towns such as Bayonne.
